I think this is an issue regardless if you leverage your own personal Internet connection via bluetooth or the in-car Verizon Wireless 3G radio built into all of the cars. (I don't know at what point Verizon deactivates the phone/modem, if ever, assuming MBrace is not active.)A big concern with doing this would be the attack vector it presents to all CANBUS systems.
